on your mitt romney "war room" hat -- for the president it is easier bah he has this job and he musz make sure fema is working, and he can be in front of the camera. for mitt romney his only job has been to get elected, so what does he do? >> i think the middle ground and sweet spot for romney is to be exceptionally sensitive to how things are going. but if people seem to be handling it as being marriage, even as the cleanup is taking place on the other side you can get back -- >> >> jennifer: but does it come at a worst time for him? >> clearly it freezes the campaign. that helps the president. secondly it gives the president a chance to demonstrate leadership and confidence. and then it usually translates to the benefit of the incumbent. people go back to what they know. this is a natural disaster. it requires government to be there to provide support and provide emergency services. one of the interesting things in this campaign has been the impact of government. i think at some level, the impact in how people view the role of government -- >> jennifer: and don'
by the romney campaign claiming that automaker jeep is planning to send american jobs to china. that's a claim that chrysler has plainly said is untrue. >> this morning before he left florida and went back to washington, he said, you know, of all the things governor romney has said, that probably hurts my feelings the most. he said you know, i never had any money when i was a kid. and the first new car i ever owned i was 30 years old and it was a jeep. i would never move jeep to china. now it turns out that jeep is reopening in china because they made so much money here they can afford to do it and they are going on with their plans here. they put out a statement today saying it was the biggest load of bull in the world that they would ever consider shutting down their american operations. they are roaring in america thanks to people like the people of ohio. >> he's running an ad in this state saying that, saying that president obama made the companies go bankrupt is now -- gave the industry the italian who's are selling it to the chinese. whoa. whoa. as we say in my faith, bless me father for
a job tonight and that was to come across as a plausible commander-in-chief. >> romney simply needing to show that, you know, he's a plausible president. >> and he achieved plausible. (laughter) millions of americans looked at mitt romney last night and said "he looks like he could sit in an oval room." (laughter) plausibility is a huge victory for romney because this race is neck and neck. >> we've seen this latest poll out of the nbc and "wall street journal." 47/47, pretty much corresponds with what we're seeing out there. an absolute dead heat. >> stephen: as we know from history, the rules clearly dictate that in the event of a tie our next president will be george w. bush. (cheers and applause) we miss you, sir. we miss you. but at this point, either candidate still has a shot as long as they can win over one key demographic. >> president obama and governor romney faced off. many polls showing them running neck in neck, making the remaining undecided voters more important than ever. >> the undecided voters. the voters in the swing states who could decide this election. >> mitt r
at 3 p.m. eastern right here on msnbc. >>> coming up, is mitt romney lying about jobs in ohio? yes, lying. we'll look at the facts. tonight the obama campaign is hitting back. >> they put out a statement today saying it was the biggest load of bull in the world, that they would ever consider shutting down american operations. he ties himself in more knots than a boy scout does in a knot-tying contest. >> we'll talk about it with ohio former democratic governor ted strickland. >>> plus, we have some new tapes from a private romney fund-raiser. his 47% problems are coming back. >>> and the billionaire boys club meets voter suppression. you won't believe who's behind those voter fraud billboards in ohio and links to the romney campaign. you're watching "politicsnation" on msnbc.

chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> they're not backing down, of course. they're also running misleading radio ads on the same topic. in cities like dayton and toledo. michael steele is the former chairman, honest chairman, of the rnc and ron reagan is a radio talk show hosts. both of my guests are msnbc political analysts. i want to start with ron. this stuff, you know, weeks ago the romney campaign said, we're not going to let this campaign be run by fact-checkers. i mean, i have never heard it said -- you just say we don't care if you find out we're lying. lying is a bad word. we don't care if you catch us. we're going to keep doing it. because we're desperate. >> yeah, well, they may be desperate. ohio is going to be the clincher for this election. everybody has been saying it and it's probably true. mitt romney probably hopes that the truth isn't going to find him in ohio. he's been a shape-shifter his entire political career. this shouldn't surprise us. and yet somehow he's taken it to a new level. the romney
ad team obama fired back at governor romney's claim that jeep is outsourcing jobs to china, but the campaign is using some of its strongest language yet. >> even the conservative detroit news criticized romney for his wrong-headedness on the bailout. after romney's false claim of jeep outsourcing to china, chrysler itself has refuted romney's lie. mitt romney and ohio jobs, wrong then. >> let detroit go interrupt. >> dishonest now. >> mark murray joins me. mark, we have governor strik land, former governor of ohio on yesterday. he called the romney ads desperate and many other surrogates for the president have said the same thing. they're firing back in an ad specifically. what is behind this -- i don't know this attempt by governor romney's campaign to put this out after the detroit news and others said that his claim is misleading. it's wrong. it's untrue. i don't know how many other descriptions you can lay out there. >> tamron, i wouldn't use the word desperation. the ad that the romney campaign first put out on this jeep situation isn't coming from a position of streng
job there. give us that perspective rocky. >> i did cut an ad with mitt romney because my dealings with him through the olympics he was a good, moderate, reasonable person very detail-oriented and he was really great for me to work with on the olympics. but you know, he shared a lot of his positions with me as he did with the massachusetts voters who is pro-choice, pro-gay and lesbian rights. i thought wow as a republican he could bring that party that was really becoming right wing, nutty, extreme back to the middle. but look what he has done. he has taken it further to the right than i think it ever has been before. i hate to say this about an old friend, but he has become a real flim-flam man in this campaign. >> cenk: shocking. now look, what we're talking about here is a perfect example rocky. is there something wrong with taking federal money to to run an olympics? i don't think so. we won the bid for the owe limp picks. but now he's saying federal money, that's not acceptable. except when it was his advantage he loved it. >> that's exactly right. $1.3 billion went towards tr
jeeps in china. romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm romney and i approve this message. >> the campaign goes romney is wrong, he's lying. look at the guy who bought chrysler and his quote. the ceo of chrysler says we are working to establish a global enterprise and announce the intent to return jeep production to china. that is the italian that bought chrysler for nothing. >> bob: romney let him off with bankruptcy. >> eric: no, he didn't. >> manager: you talk about the managed bankruptcy. >> kimberly: italian that wants to do business -- >> bob: they have built jeeps in china for year. >> kimberly: talk about the accuracy of the ad. >> bob: maybe they work together. >> kimberly: moving on. >> bob: the flat earth society people with republican colleagues won the public relations battle on global warming. against real science. now it's back and we find out that having the hurricane this late in the season with the catastrophic weather system for hottest ten years on record is back. i think we win the battle easily. >> dana: best way to win a p.r. battle is with facts. >>
a good job -- chris christie was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political
the first debate was hitting romney left and right with the zingers. >> well, governor romney is right, you are familiar with jobs being shipped overseas because you invested in companies that were shipping jobs overseas. >> jon: boom! >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. (cheers and applause). >> jon: bam! >> the biggest geopolitical threat facing america you said russia. not al qaeda, you said russia. and the 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back. (laughter and applause). >> jon: well, that was a little hackie. i mean that was -- that was a it will roasty. i wouldn't (bleep) your foreign policy with margaret thatcher's (bleep), come on! hickory dickory dock, your geopolitical understanding can suck my -- (laughter) sorry. that's -- no, please don't because then i'll do it again some night.

in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> romney: i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> bill: how about a little fact checking on that ad, judd? >> yeah. it is really, i think probably the most dishonest ad we've seen this campaign cycle. at least at the presidential level. >> bill: which is saying something, isn't it? >> it is saying something. is it it starts off right at the beginning when mitt romney says i have a plan to help the auto industry. and as it turns out he has no plan. there's nothing on his web site and actually reporters have followed up and they've said could you send us a copy of the plan. and there is no plan. no one's gotten anything. so i guess it is just the idea that -- saying you have a plan is more important than actually having a plan. >> bill: also when he says i have a plan for 12 million new jobs and we haven't seen the plan yet either. on the auto industry, it is kind of late after g.m. and chrysler are already back, right? already back on their feet ma
are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >>> i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. >> mitt romney did actually say he'd let detroit go bankrupt and he opposed the bailout and said if we did it it you could kiss the automotive industry good-bye and that didn't really work out. when they endorsed him, they said in spite of him screwing up so badly. the point where they say barack obama sold gm to italians who are going to build jooirps in china. this appears to be a spin on this ad from ohio last week. >> i saw a store today, one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep. now owned by the italians, thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america and i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair and if it's fair america will win. >> that line about jeep moving american jobs to china? moving all production to china? that is not true. chrysler is not moving its production to china. that is not at all true. that is not true. that is a lie. chrysler itself had to come out publicly and say, what mitt romney
, which crushed delaware, romney is now running ads. that creates 800,000 new jobs according to the experts. all overseas. all overseas. by the way, remember when governor romney at the convention said the first and i will do when elected is to take jobs tour. it is going to have to be a foreign trip. when you hear the governor romney say he protects american jobs by being tough on china, a word for you -- malarkey. absolute malarkey. look, he is saying he would get tough on china is only outdone by his bizarre claims about the automobile industry. a week ago, remember what he was saying with the president. mr. president, i supported the rescue of the automobile industry. i said we will get them to bankruptcy, etc. the problem is he did not. he did not say -- he would not allow a penny of federal money to help them out. there was nobody including bain capital willing to come in and help them out. i have never seen this in public. i have served with eight presidents. within two weeks he is running an ad in the state saying that president obama made the companies go bankrupt, i

is now saying the bailout cost gm jobs, but he's also said obama did exactly what romney had prescribed. help me. >> well, let me see if i can here. what happened is romney put together this -- first of all, he started at a campaign rally misquoting what chrysler was, in fact, doing. they're not moving jobs to china. they're increasing some work in china to get around the tariffs over there. they've added 7,000 jobs in north america. the fact checkers went after him for that, so he put out an ad essentially saying the same thing on television. the fact checkers went after him for that and he put out a new ad on the radio making a worse and more false allegation. some time ago the pollsters said we're not going to let the fact checkers dictate our campaign and nobody can argue with that statement. >> that is an outright lie, isn't it? >> there's no truth. you have chrysler now coming back and responding saying, stop this. this is not what we're doing. >> indeed. >> it just doesn't seem to matter. >> well done, mr. romney. >> dana mill barng, thank ybank. and we'll be right back. jack, yo

: marvin in chicago, a democratic caller. caller: how you feel mitt romney can be qualified as president -- you say he could create 12 lovain jobs when he was a -- 12 million jobs when he was governor of massachusetts. he was 47 perata 50 in job creation there. and he left office with low job approval. and then he made those comments about the 47%. as president, you are president of 100% of the people. how do you feel he is qualified? guest: if we are going to be rewinding the tape, with shorter won back a little over three and a half to four years ago when our president claimed that if he did not get unemployment below 5% that he should not be reelected. i think that is the barometer that people are looking at president obama. we have soaring residents -- rhetoric and great expectations for this president. in the first couple of months in office after the stimulus, the president took his eye off the ball. these are worrying about cold warming conventions in sweden. he started working about card check. and then doing health care, all very partisan issue. when we were looking at our worst
for the job that he's doing. they try to put romney like he's already the president. the obama said, edg he is president of the united states. that is what i think they should concentrate on what he is doing. because he steps right to the plate. host: about the ramifications of the storm here is "u.s.a. today" storm could leave 10 million without power. utilities stay on top of outages and press for the impact. that is "u.s.a. today." on the economy here is "u.s.a. today" as well how will sandy affect the economy? economic losses will likely exceed the $12 billion to $16 billion from hurricane irene which battered the northeast in august of 2011 says a chief economist. and an economics professor at smith ity of maryland school of business estimates it will result in about $35 billion to $45 billion total losses. and another company projects $10 billion to $20 billion of damage about half insured. property damage will be repaired and lost economic output will be adjust set by other increased activity as residents prepare for the hurricane. and here is another story about economic impact from
officials. he has a job to do at this time. mitt romney is for better or worse in the awkward position of having to kind of campaign but not really campaign at the same time. in the "boston globe" there is i think a realist editorial that says the kumbaya stage, apparently what we're in right now, won't last wrong. politics is an undeniable aspect of any catastrophe. >> i mean look if you're a key executive of the state in the hurricane path you were graded on one thing in the next week and that is the response to the hurricane. everything else out the window because if you mess it up, everything is out the window. let's recall that president obama is fairly popular in jersey and chris christie is not. and he needs a lot of help from the federal government. he needs fema help, red cross help and trailers and everything so for a state executive at a bipartisan time, the president, he has an advantage, he can conduct diplomacy so to speak on like two treks. he can have the full machinery of the white house and the disaster response and being statesman like. that campaign isn't over. that
